Streak and bright flash over Newnan, GA sky last night.

I was outside with my Friend talking around 11 pm on 8/23/2014 on the east side of Newnan, GA, when a streak of light grabbed both our attention.

It then flashed brightly and quickly faded away. This was the strangest thing I have ever witnessed. No sound at all came our way so it was not lightening or anything real close to us.

My wife happened to be driving a few miles away at that same time and said she saw the flash of light at that same time, but thought it was lightning.

I have seen hundreds of shooting stars over the years, but none ever brightly flashed like this.
